What ever happened to 'information super-highway'? Sadly, I think this highlights a sign of our times - something for nothing (enter a few keywords, click & send, then wait for checks to arrive) - quick buck mentality.
Again, don't get me wrong... most of these programs and techniques are good and useful - but I think they are being used inappropriately. I come back to point I made about real reason for people coming online in first place - they want data, facts, advice, knowledge. It's no coincidence that internet was often referred to as 'information super-highway'!
So let's get back to giving our customers - our website visitors - what they came for. By all means use Directory Generator or Traffic Equaliser if you must, and - yes - I highly endorse 'blog and ping' principal, but use them for creation and submission of content-rich sites people are going to come back to again and again. That way we will all get what we want - searchers get their information, search engines get relevant listings, AdWords advertisers get quality click-thru's, and webmasters get genuine visitors who'll be more predisposed to opening their wallet!
